Rangers trade Kundratek to the Caps
 
Quote:

Washington consummated a minor league swap with the New York Rangers on Tuesday. The Capitals sent forward Francois Bouchard to the Rangers in exchange for defenseman Tomas Kundratek.

Bouchard will report to the Rangers’ AHL farm team in Hartford while Kundratek will join the AHL Hershey Bears.

Change of scenery swap for both teams and players

Fire Sather 11-08-2011 04:39 PM

Hm. Okay I guess.

Don't know anything bout Bouchard.

17futurecap 11-08-2011 04:40 PM

Hasn't Kundratek been a healthy scratch the past few weeks with the glut of dmen the Whale have? A change of scenery will probably do him well.

My thread was actually made before his, I managed to break this one :laugh:

Don't get me wrong; I understand trading Kundratek with the stockpile of young D ahead of him; but couldn't we get something better than that?

NYRFAN218 11-08-2011 04:42 PM

Bouchard seems to have had a quiet year last year based on stats. Only 24 points in 74 games. Year before he put up 52 in 77.

BlueshirtBlitz 11-08-2011 04:42 PM

Don't really understand this. Initial impression is that Kundratek is a better prospect.

Rangers_23 11-08-2011 04:43 PM

Right winger. PM Bouchard's little brother and PA Parenteau's cousin.

From reading his prospect profile on the Caps page it looks like he was a prolific scorer in the Q, but it hasn't translated yet.

Likely just AHL depth but you never know...

Jarkko Immonen 11-08-2011 04:43 PM

Bouchard...meh...not much upside at this point and he's already declining in production in the AHL. Zero points in like 9 games this season for Hershey. Whatever. Figured they could get someone with a bit more potential because I've liked Kundratek.

No kidding...hahaha.

Maybe the Rangers have confidence in Bouchard and he is the call-up for Wolski?

GAGLine 11-08-2011 04:47 PM

What the hell happened to Kundratek? All reports were that he had a very good year last year. I doubt Bouchard will ever play in the NHL.

No way IMO. The guy hasn't scored a point this year. There's already more deserving guys in the system.

ColonialsHockey10 11-08-2011 04:47 PM

A bit disappointed.

2008, while good for us, was looking like an incredible Ranger draft. Del Zotto picking it up has made it better, but I had higher expectations for Kundratek, Weise, Grachev and Doyle.

Jumbo* 11-08-2011 04:48 PM

Meh trade.

Caps win it by an edge. Bouchard peak out at 16-17 years old :laugh:

He's been doing nothing for the last 2 years.

Bird Law 11-08-2011 04:49 PM

We have a ****-ton of D. Kundratek was sucking this year. Odd man out. Don't care one way or the other about this move.

Rangers_23 11-08-2011 04:49 PM

Here's the link to his HF profile.

My guess is that The Rangers plan on calling up a forward soon, and Bouchard replaces him in hartford.

This guy allowed into NYC clubs?

I think it has more to do with the fact that we had like 75 d-men on the Whalepack.

Ih8theislanders 11-08-2011 04:57 PM

Meh.

SherWood Lumber 76 11-08-2011 04:59 PM

Could have had Gustav Nyquist.

Just sayin....
